Nunn declared Thursday he had serious doubts that ; the legislative reapportionment act would stand up in court. He said he would allow it to become , law without his signature. At . a news conference here, Nuhn'also termed the recent special session of the General Assembly as "an expensive exercise In evasiveness." He said he would have liked to have seen the legislature pass a reapportionment bill which would have brought stability to all districts in the state for the next 10 years. While saying he did not see evidence of partisan or factional politics in the bill, Nunn said it was obvious the legislators were motivated more by their own political ambitions than in complying with the legal requirements of reapportionment. The bill was passed last week. Nunn met with an industrial prospect here Thursday and then flew to Athens, Ga., for the NCAA basketball game between the University of Kentucky and Western Kentucky University. He will meet with representatives of the federal Health. Education and Welfare Department Friday and return to Kentucky late Saturday. Friday Movies MADISON THEATER Airport.

It Stills Pays Of f A 10-year-old Park Hills, Ky., boy was suddenly and briefly wealthy this week because of a bank error. Denis J. Bracken, son of Mr. and Mrs Michael Coffey, received a statement showing he had $15,047.85 In his savings account. His mother said Thursday that when the statement was received earlier this week, "I didn't know what to think. I had opened the account for Denis early in January with a deposit of $10. "Before going to the bank to straighten It out, I called some of Denis' relatives. Some of them arewealthy and I thought perhaps they had made a large deposit to his account. "That turned out not to be true." Mrs. Coffey said, "so I went to the bank today to straighten it out."An official of the First National Bank and Trust Company in Covington told me what had happened. "It seems the clerk forgot to enter Denis' account number in the bank records of the transaction. That meant that when the person who deposited the $15,000 in a new savings account the bank issued him Denis" number. And that meant there were two accounts with the same number," she explained. "The bankcaughtthe error within a day or two but forgot to remove the $15,000 from our account." Mrs. Coffey noted the official told her she could have withdrawn any or all of the -15,000 while it was assigned to Denis' account. "As it was," Mrs. Coffey said, "Denis gets to keep the interest of $35.85. When the official told me that, I said, 'Gee! Thisis like playing Monopoly!'

Poos said he appointed Thomas W. Betting to the non-paid post, to allow probated offenders to have someone to report to. Poos said that state law requires regular reports to a probation officer If offenders are placed on probation. City council members expressed concern about the city's liability on actions by the probation officer, and asked City Attorney Bruce Henneberg to check legal aspects. Reaction: reapportionment is all about, or Its relationship to their home county. Those querrled ranged from county Judges to store clerks, but hardly anybody knew what it was all about. AFTER EXPLAINING redisricting several dozen times, this reporter wasn't so sure he understood it either.

The three-month-old body conducted the first of six scheduled public earlngs that will lead the commission to a report on the city's environment and to what steps the city commission should take to corect the problems. The majority of the witnesses represented various governmental offices and made several similar observations to the commission: The sewage treatment plant at Bromley, which serves Covington and other large areas of Northern Kentucky, is Inadequate to meet the minimum treatment needs.' The combined storm and sanitary sewer lines produce a problem when there Is rainfall, or when the Ohio River is high, in that the heavy load in the pipes forces sewage to bypass the treatment plant and go Into the river untreated. A lack of manpower, equipment and funds prevents the sanitation district from enforcing regulations that limit what can be piped through the sewer system. WILLIAM LANE, planning engineer for the Northern Kentucky Area Planning Commission, said that the Bromley plant should be replaced with a more efficient treatment facility, which is currently under design. Lane estimated that the plant could be in operation by 1975 or 1976 and would cost $15 million. A third of the expense would be finance through a federal grant, and the remainder would . be funded by bonds that would be paid off by sewer service charges. lie said that the cost of Two Cyclists Face Two members of the Seventh Sons Motorcycle Club were Jailed Thursday after an off-duty Covington police officer was attacked in a Latonia tavern late Wednesday night. Joseph Dale Cammack, 26, 606 Garrard St., Covington, is being held on $3500 bond on charges of malicious shooting without wounding, carrying a concealed weapon charges, give him a good recom-mendation, and pay him "x amount of money." Robert E. Ruberg, lawyer for the school board, said the board agreed to two of the conditions. He pointed out to Pilder and his attorney that the board did not agree to give him a "good recommendation." "I advised we would give him a recommendation based upon what the facts were," said Ruberg. The school and Ruberg met with Pilder and his lawyer for almost an hour and a half Wednesday night before reaching a solution agreeable to all. The evening meeting had been scheduled for the continuation of l'ilder's hearing at Simon Kenton High School, and would have been the fourth session of the hearing. Pilder, who was suspended from the Independence, Ky. School in February, had been charged with conduct unbecoming a teacher, neglect of duty, insubordination, and threatening violence to students and teachers at the school. Emberton Backed By Senator Cook WASHINGTON (AP) Sen. Mar-low W. Cook (R-Ky.) Thursday endorsed Tom Emberton of Edmonton for the Republican nomination for governor of Kentucky. Emberton is the state's former public service commissioner. "Emberton's character and Integrity coupled with his broad knowledge of both rural and urban problems make him a candidate that will very well be received in all parts of the commonwealth." Cook said in a statement. Cook said he plans to return to Kentucky as often as Senate business permits to campaign for Emberton. All four agreed that the redisricting was probably the result of "politics." . . .ROBERTSON County Clerk Hild-reth Harber became concerned when he learned that his county was in the same district with 52,000 people in Covington. He had believed the link was with rural Kenton County, and he saw no problem with that. "We don't have any crow to pick with those folks (Covington), but we don't have anything in common," Harber said. He conceded that Robertson has no chance of ever electing a native son as a xfate senator, and then related f,Jw the county and three otherf the plant would mean an estimated 125 Increase In sewer rates. The separation of the storm and sanitary sewer lines also would be costly, although witnesses differed on the extent. Lane suggested a rough estimate of 80 for the total Job. Terry Hughes, Covington city engineer, put the price at $20 million THE QUESTION of the failure to enforce existing regulations was raised by Commission Chairman David F. Surber, who brought out a 1954 document of the sanitation district and read 15 Items that are prohibited from being In the sewer lines. Paul Brown, general manager of the Bromley plant, said that it was possible that the the regualtions are being violated daily without enforcement measures being taken. Brown also said that the plant did not have the people nor the equipment to make some of the tests required to determine if the regulations were being violated. He said tests for most of the prohibited matter were not performed daily.. ROBERT CAUDLE, a member of the Kentucky Water Pollution Control Commission, representing the public Interest, said It was hoped that the commonwealth could Install electronic water quality monitoring devices In sewer lines within five to 10 years to attempt to identify problems at their sources. The operation of the treatment plant was criticized by C. C. Carnes, of Ludlow, who said he was a chemist at the plant before he was fired. After citing health department figures on the volume of the plant, Carnes charged that it was being lmporperly run by Inexperienced personnel. The commission will hold five and willfully and maliciously shooting into a building frequented by people. His companion, Darrel Linville Meeks, also 26, Shady Shores Trailer Park, was released on $500 bond on a charge of assault and battery.

Fiscal court members held a brief meeting at 1 p. m., and accepted Craig's signed statement that his wife brought to the meeting. "Due to the fact that I am no longer physically able to handle dogs and can get no dependable help, and also due to the distance that I now live from my kennel ... I wish to resign from my position as dog warden of Boone County. This is to be effective April 1, 1971," the statement said. Crlag recently was the crux of a controversy resulting from charges brought by the Boone County SPCA over the treatment of dogs in his custody.

In the Marty Kehoe Page 34 5 Seem To Care' tobacco counties were formerly in the same district and took turns sending someone to the Senate. A GROUP TALKING baseball in the sheriff's office at Falmouth wasn't overjoyed about the redis-cism about how it happened. "We (rural people) Just don't have the votes, and the power goes where the votes are. It's getting that way more and more all the time," one deputy explained. "Farmers got all kinds of problems," added another. "Tobacco, corn . . . maybe we ought to be redistrlcted with another state that's got some money."po One Falmouth resident said tha he liked the redistrict plan, unti'i he more public hearings on other environmental questions, Surber said.

Charges circled the block and fired several shots at Kinman, two of which traveled all the way through the tavern and out a plate glass window. No one was injured. Police said that the two men were arrested at Meeks' home, where a gun was also confiscated. Meeks gave a different version of the encounter. He said that a conflict arose over playing of a Juke box, and although Kinman identified himself as a policeman, he produced only a badge that did not look authentic. A scuffle ensued, Meeks said, but things cooled down, and Cammack and he left the tavern.

The SPCA will present Its plans for an animal shelter and for animal care In the county at this meeting. Fiscal court members pointed out they were willing to accept Craig's resignation because he had gone against one of their directives.

"Only the politicians seems to care," said a woman in Williams-, town.
